This week I made even more progress decluttering my space. The focus for this week was Komono or miscellaneous category per Marie Kondo’s book advice. I also attended Machine Intelligence Summit San Francisco by REWORK and finished the week off with a group ski trip to Tahoe.
Weekly Review March 20-26, 2017
I went to Machine Intelligence Summit San Francisco by REWORK. It was my first machine learning conference and it was great; lots of cool stuff happening.
The weekend was spent in Tahoe snowboarding. Saturday we spent at Heavenly after it got five inches of fresh snow, which was amazing with perfect weather. Sunday we spent at Kirkwood, weather was a little worse than Saturday but I do love riding the gullies in Kirkwood.
Decluttering is also a kind of an adventure. By going through every single thing and gathering things together by category teaches you something about yourself. For example I learned I really do like pens and paper notebooks. In addition I got rid of whole bunch of skin care products and makeup as it turns out they do expire. There are websites like http://www.checkfresh.com/ where one can check the manufacturing dates.

I finished reading another book on healthcare: How Doctors Think by Jerome Groopman. Fascinating read, one should not shy away from asking questions to doctors.
I also finished reading Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This is the second book from Marie Kondo. I read it along as I was tidying up. This book had more of the practical info compared to the first one. The most valuable thing – in which order to do things inside the Komono category.
